MEDITATION (See the Meditation page):

Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus upon a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.


Meditation is the ultimate technique and at the core of all the Yoga practices. This is part of Yoga’s system for waking up to your essence/potential.

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness also known as "yogic sleep." The Yoga Nidra state is most similar to that of deep dreamless sleep, with the notable difference that the person is fully awake. In addition, Yoga Nidra is also a practice conducive to entering the Nidra state. Through guided relaxation techniques and visualization, this practice aims to create a deeply relaxing state for exploration of latent consciousness.Yoga Nidra is a powerful practice that complements meditation and that can be helpful in noticing deep seated habitual patterns of action and thought. This class starts with a brief section of gentle stretches to release body tension in preparation for lying down in a restful position for most of the practice.

KIDS MINDFUL YOGA:

Our Kids Mindful Yoga classes are for kids ages 5ish to 9ish. We also have a Restorative / Therapeutic class happening at the same time/day which would be a great option for parents who want to take their own class while the kids take one too.

In these kid-centric yoga classes we are teaching the very same fundamentals of mindfulness in body, breath, mind and life; simply scaled to fit the child.

In addition to fun and energizing movements they will be practicing creative ways to center their mind; feel their breath; work with others; and find and trust their individual edge.
